The TBR Tag

It’s time for the TBR Tag. Thanks for Noriko for tagging me! Let’s get started.

Questions:

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?:

I use Goodreads to keep track of my TBR. I really like how accessible it is compared to a written list and I can access it on my phone through their app, so if I’m at a library or book store, I can check it.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?:

Definitely, mostly print. I much prefer print books to e-books. There is nothing like actually having the book to read.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?:

I usually check the first 20 books on my TBR list and then, determine which one I like the best. If I really want to read a book, I always prioritize it.

A book that’s been on your TBR the longest.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman has been on my list for a long time and I really want to read it, unfortunately, my library seems to always have it checked out. I do have the audiobook version of it, but I feel the physical copy is much better.

A book that you recently added to your TBR.

This book caught my eye at my library and, with other books that I want checked out, I decided to check it out. I haven’t read it, but plan to within the next week or so. It definitely has an interesting premise combining adventure with mythology.

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.

I always thought this had a beautiful cover which was my main reason for buying this book at a book sale. I have not read it and do not plan to for a while. Still, it is nice to look at.

A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading.

The premise seemed interesting, upon reading the summary at this time,  but now I do not really want to read it. It just seems so typical and after reading reviews, it seems boring.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

There’s no picture for it, but Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman. This is the second book in the Scythe series and I loved the first book. I have pretty high expectations for this sequel.

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you.

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

This book seemed to be everywhere last summer. I swear every booktuber was recommending this novel, but it just doesn’t seem to be my type of novel. Still, there may come a time when I do want to read it and the series.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

I have heard nothing but praise for this book from peers and the internet. But I just haven’t found the time to read it. I do own a copy of the book and it sits on my bookshelf, seemingly watching my every move.

A book on your TBR that you’re just dying to read.

I really want to read this book. But it seems to always checked out at my library and I do not want to buy it right now as I am a bit low on money. 😦

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf

144 books and always expanding. It will definitely get bigger as the year progresses.

And that about does it. I had a lot of fun digging into my TBR and just going through what I was interested in early on in my young reading career. I am not going to tag anyone, but feel free to do this tag yourself! Thanks to Noriko, once again.
